Scouting Reports:
“Power center with a versatile skill set, Ruzicka excels in the offensive zone as a goal scorer with a good nose for the net, can bang home rebounds but is also capable of scoring from the outside, strong puck protector and is capable of extending plays on the cycle; needs to get more consistent in his defensive effort.” – Brandon Holmes, Riding Pine Hockey

“A big bodied center that can be a beast on skates… a prototypical power forward frame, excellent puck control…has good puck skills…loves to control the puck on his stick carrying it with a calm confidence…very strong and with his impressive reach is almost impossible to knock off the puck when he wants to keep possession…not the most explosive skater and often seems to float around, but his top speed is real solid and he is near to impossible to stop once in full motion…creating chances for his teammates with skilled passes…has a really hard slap shot and accurate wrister…uses his body along the boards and throws some big hits…loves to create offense with his speed, hands and hockey sense…needs to cut down on the fly-bys and implement more starting and stopping on the puck to become more effective… battles for the pucks, plays responsibly in the defensive zone…has some definite room to grow in his play but could be a real stud once he reaches his full potential.  (November 2016)” – Future Considerations
